## What club has a 24 degree loft?

23-27 degrees A 5 iron typically has around 23 or 24 degrees of loft. This is very similar to the 5 hybrid golf clubs. A 5 iron is often a borderline club in the bag where golfers will switch between irons and hybrids and potentially decide to take the 5 iron out of the bag.

## What club is 26 degree loft?

4 iron = 26 (180-210 yards) 5 iron = 28 degrees (160 to 190 yards) 6 iron = 31 degrees (140 to 180 yards) 7 iron = 34 degrees (130 to 170 yards)

## What is the standard lie angle for irons?

Matching the lie angle of clubs to the specific golfer is one of the goals of a clubfitting session. Lie angles almost always range from the mid-50 degrees (in drivers) to the mid-60 degrees (in short irons). In irons, the range is typically from 59 or 60 degrees to around 64 degrees.

## What loft is a 9 wood?

9 wood clubs typically have a loft close to 26 degrees while 3 or 4 hybrids typically have a loft of more like 28 degrees.

## What club is a 15 degree?

The 15 degree hybrid club is said to be a low lofted hybrid. This hybrid club can be used to replace 1 iron. This 15 degree is called the loft, and it is one of the factors that help you choose a hybrid club to replace any old ones. The loft describes the clubface’s angle relative to the ground.

## What is a 32 degree golf club?

The loft and lie of a golf club are often misunderstood measurements. The 3-iron typically has 20 degrees of loft, the 5-iron has 25 degrees, the 7-iron has 32 degrees, the 9-iron has 41 degrees, and so on down through the wedges. The lob wedge will have the most loft at 60 degrees.

## How much does 1 degree of loft affect distance?

The distance difference between clubs is created equally by the increments in club length and loft angle. The calculations here are based on 1/2″ club length difference = 5 yards distance difference and every 4° loft angle difference = 5 yards distance difference.

## What has more loft 56 or 60?

A 60-degree wedge has four more degrees of loft than a 56-degree wedge. This extra loft can make a big difference when it comes to getting the ball up in the air and then stopping it on the green. Sixty-degree wedges work well for greenside bunker shots, and they tend to spin quite a bit.

## What is a 6 iron used for?

It’s best to use a 6 iron if you want to hit the ball over a tree or prefer a soft landing on the green so that the ball hits the ground without rolling further too much.

## How far does Tiger Woods hit a 5 iron?

Tiger Woods can hit a five iron over two hundred yards. Most of the time, he hits it about 210 yards. This is undoubtedly quite a bit further than most amateur golfers should be able to hit their five iron. His long distances come down to clubhead speed and the efficiency of his golf swing.

## What is the standard length for a 5 iron golf club?

There are no specific industry standards for golf club length, but different manufacturers have differing lengths for clubs. A 5-iron from a particular brand is 37.75 inches, others 38 inches or even 38.5 inches long.
